in 2012? susan is in baltimore. hi susan. caller: hello. no i'm not going to stick with president obama this time. i feel that he's creating such a divisive atmosphere in our country and a very -- i'm very concerned for that, being the person who we want in our leadership. i feel like he has not shown us any substantive plans in the four years that he's been in business as the president, and instead, it seems like he wants to be rehraeblgt dollars, he picks -- reelected, he picks hot button issues such as will and illegal aliens, and he just starts divisiveness and causes peoples' emotions, the people who fall in those categories, i'm one of those people, and i have children and they are in one of those categories, and he doesn't have a plan, he puts it temporarily together and touts that as plan, but it's not, so that he can get reelected. again, if he was doing a good reelection campaign and maybe used things like that but also had demonstrated over the last almost four years some good, strong substantive plans that brought the economy to our country and brought the people together, w

issues. ed is an independent in baltimore. caller: good morning and thank you for c-span. the first action of the violence was an organized protest stemming most likely from 9/11. we found a video made over a year ago to put the blame on it. it is a reactionary congress here in the u.s. that all of a sudden wants to do something about it or reactionary administration. these were planned protests, not grass roots outbreaks of violence. we have blamed it on a year-old video. eventually we will lose some rights because of its. host: the occupy wall street movement is one year old today. this is the question put forth by "usa today" -- arkansas, john, a republican. caller: good morning. this particular question raises another interesting question. who is this u.s. government that will control free speech? is it the same u.s. government that allows illegals to access our education, medication, housing, employment sectors? is it the same u.s. government that limits the futures of 1 million aborted babies each year although 50% of the people are against it? the same government that forces

was a social worker for baltimore families. now i am a social worker building opportunities for families throughout america. friends, we work on macro issues and we work on the macaroni and cheese issues. when women are in the halls of power, our national debate reflects the needs and dreams of american families. women leading means that congress is working to create jobs, white quality child care more affordable, and strengthen the middle class. because we understand the america we love creates the economy an opportunity from the middle out, not the top down. these are our priorities. these are president obama's priorities. but we know that every issue is a lawman's issue. -- a woman's issue. an equal pay for equal work is an all-american issue. the 77 cents that women make for every dollar men earn makes a real difference to our families. families struggling to make every dollar counts. we are so proud that the first loss 95 president barack obama was the lily ledbetter fair pay act. the first bill was about america's first principles, equality, opportunity, and prosperity. those repub
at this in the baltimore sun -- let's listen to mitt romney talking about the issue of taxes, on nbc yesterday on meet the press. [video clip] >> people at a high income level will have fewer deductions and exemptions. as numbers will come down, otherwise they would get a tax break. i want to make sure, despite what the democrats said at their convention, i am not reducing taxes on high-income taxpayers. i am bringing down the rate of taxation but also bringing down deductions and exemptions at the high end so the revenues stay the same. the taxes people pay states the same. middle-income people will get a break. on the high end, what's coming in and say it's the same -- what's coming in stays the same. but we encourage small businesses, because they hire people. host: that was mitt romney yesterday. we are asking you about your message to congress. fred on twitter -- chicago, matt on the democratic line. caller: the thing that you just showed on the newspaper when you first open the show, a house republican agenda for this week is to pass a bill to eliminate the clean energy loans and the sequestrati
. baltimore book fest. tomorrow, richmond, virginia, at noon. and then in the evening i'll speak in norfolk. then on monday night, we'll be at virginia tech, which is very interesting, going back to the scene of the massacre. i'll be speaking there, you know, 32 people were killed there. and colin goddard is coming with us. he was one of those victims. he was shot four times. i'm also looking forward to interviewing a professor there. and then we're on to colorado for the big debate. we're going to be doing something interesting. we're both speaking on the silent majority election 2012 tour, but also we do this daily, radio and television broadcast that airs on over 1,100 stations, so we have to do the broadcast wherever we are. and being on the scene has been remarkable. i'll give you one example. we, last week, were in freeport, illinois, and got a truck, and we went to the stevenson fairgrounds. it was right across the street from a plant which happened to be owned by bain capital. across the street, the workers, the employees of this plant who worked there like, oh, dot turner for 4 ye

after watching a baseball game in baltimore. he was thrown 30 feet in the air on impact and scraped along another 20 feet on the pavement after he hit the ground. i ran to his side and held him and called his name, but he was limp and still, without breath or pulse. his eyes were open with the empty stare of death, and we prayed, the two of us, there in the gutter, with only my voice. his injuries, inside and out, were massive, and for terrible days he lingered between life and death. tipper and i spent the next thirty days and nights at his bedside. our family was lifted and healed, in no small measure by the love, compassion and prayers of thousands of people, most of whom we never even knew. albert is plenty brave and strong, and with the support of three wonderful sisters-- karenna, kristin, and sarah-- and two loving parents who helped him with his exercises every morning and prayed for him every night, he pulled through. and now, thank god, he has fully recovered, and he runs and plays and torments his older sisters like any little boy.
